Intuitively Martin Kohlstedt feels his way into this body of wood, felt hammers and steel strings. The young composer, who grew up in the forests of Thuringia, doesn’t just put on an anonymous fingerplay – he perpetually opens himself up with each and every moment, with every stroke of the keys. It’s an attempt to create something close and personal beyond sophisticated classics or artificial pathos. The first captivating ideas are formed with the piano – but when space and audience require it he may electrify your mind with noise and bass or abruptly fall silent.
